A blog about making art and other things using cloth, paper, paint, colour, stitch, and all sorts of exciting techniques, some of which I'm sure I still have to discover! I hope that the joy all this gives me is visible in what you can see here.

Some 'Too Late' gift ideas!

I did manage to make up one book, book wrap and a couple of lavender sachets as a Christmas gift, but unfortunately I didn't give myself enough time to make up any more. I got as far as the leaf printing, and the 'Falling Leaves 2012' embroidery, but the rest have been put together since! Nothing much more to say about them really, I think the photos below are self explanatory. The books have been made up of a selection of papers, suitable either for sketching, or using as scrap books.

Machine stitching on the wrap above.

Hand stitch on this example.

If you have read this far, I wish you all a very happy, healthy, peaceful and ofcourse CREATIVE New Year!
